Najah Webb's piece chosen for Best Microfiction
Updated: Feb 10
The earth was shaking and the picture frames were falling and the car horns were honking and my breath caught.
The short piece "Ne Plus Ultra" by Najah Webb will appear in the Best Microfiction 2021. The piece originally was published in 805's 19th Amendment Centennial Issue to celebrate Black Women writers. Najah resides in Atlanta, GA, and has an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School. She is a freelance writer and copy editor as well as a member of the National Book Critics Circle. She is also the founder of the BIPOC Book Critics Collective, a safe space for Black, indigenous book critics of color to amplify the voices of BIPOC writers.
Best Microfiction is a new literary anthology that exclusively features prose of less than 400 words. Short prose has become increasingly popular with readers and writers, and we are excited and honored to have this piece included in such an important collection of work.
Congratulations, Najah! We are so happy for you.
